Mexican actress and singer Sandra Echeverría’s star is on the rise in Hollywood…
The 26-year-old Mexican telenovela star will appear in “The Mule” alongside Hollywood icons Sharon Stone and Christian Slater.
The thriller, inspired by true events, centers on an American reporter (Stone) searching for her missing brother (Slater) against the backdrop of the violence and human smuggling across the US/Mexican border.
“Stone has to cross the border between Mexico and the United States in search of her brother,” says Echeverría. “During the adventure, other Latinos and I accompany her.”
Gabriela Tagliavini will direct “The Mule,” which is set to begin filming in Utah later this month.
This will be Echeverría’s second role in a Hollywood film…and the second time she works with a Stone.
Earlier this year, the “El Clon” and “La fuerza del destino” star filmed Oliver Stone’s upcoming crime-drama “Savages” with big-name stars including Salma Hayek, Beneicio del Toro and John Travolta. “Savages” is slated for release on September 28, 2012.
